    The Tailgaters Fantasy Football league has been formed and ALL of the teams are set. Welcome team owners to our first season.
    Please let me know when we should hold our draft. With owners from coast to coast and personal conflicts, we will need to decide together on a day and a time. Please post your recommendations and/or issues and they will be addressed.
    Team names and avatars/logos are up to you to choose. The schedule has already been set for the league by ESPN.
    Thank you team owners for responding to your invitations in such a pleasant manner. I look forward to a fun and competitive season.

    I'm on the Left Coast so later is better. Get off work at 4:30 PT, takes about an hour to get home, I can sneak out early if its on a weekday.

    Saturday sounds good. I will want to hear from our west coast members about the time as well as the day. Should I shorten the draft from 90sec. per pick to 60sec. per pick. , could be done.

    Maybe shorten after say round 5 or so. Don't want to be rushed early on.

    How does Saturday, August 31 at 8pm EST sound ? I'll have to look into the time per pick issue. This is not a firm date yet, we need to hear from the other team owners, particularly the west coast owners. I will announce the day, date, and time as soon as I can.

    See this is the big problem, always, difficult.

    I fly to Arizona in 2 weeks, Aug 29, for the long weekend. It's for my longtime keeper league draft, already on that Friday or Saturday. The rest of the time we play golf or are at the pool.

    I also have a work fantasy draft some time, yet to be determined.

    I don't mind the ESPN think auto-drafting for me though, based on my own rankings I will set.

    How can the league adjust to include you Frank ? You are just as important as every other owner, please help with any suggestions that you may have . This league is listening to all of it's owners.

    I'm good with the 31st, basically any weekday after 6pm eastern or any time really on the weekend (though the later the better since the kids will be asleep).

    I'm so jealous!

    Can it let me auto-draft based on my settings, on this ESPN site?

    Well if it isn't a Sat, for me I will finish on AUTODRAFT. I've done well that way. My son took his NFL league that way. That and picking up Vick two days after CM3 took out Kolb in game one.

    We could do the draft the same way we did that keeper league draft on here earlier this year.......the slow draft on here and then transfer all the picks at the end to the league.

    It was honestly the most fun I have ever had for a draft that was online.
